We return to Lima, the capital of Peru, on Friday! Cynthia’s godparents will pick us up at the airport and we’ll visit with them, and get tips for exploring from the locals.
Saturday: Sightseeing! & Liz wants to take us to a place to see some folkloric dancing
Sunday: Visiting Cynthia’s aunt and hopefully the mom of Ale Foresto, one of our She’s the First supporters in NYC who lived in Peru through her high school years.
Monday: Visiting Cynthia’s aunt who is a schoolteacher. We hope to guest teach English in her classroom, and tell them all about She’s the First.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: Shadowing three non-profits — two orphanages, the Hogar Sagrada Familia (where our artistic friends at ALEGRIA will be working with the children on art projects) and el Rebano de Jesus, as well as La Asociacion Civil Pro Nino Intimo, which mentors children through street soccer games.
Friday: Last day to sight see
Saturday: Airport back to US via Florida
If you want a preview of who we’ll be meeting at the Hogar Sagrada Familia, check out one of the many videos past volunteers have posted to YouTube. Below that, see what our friends at ALEGRIA aim to do there…their team, led by Shay Grabawski, leaves for Lima the week after we return to the US, so we’ll meet up in NYC to trade notes!
